### Re: [O] [ob-calc] bug when given table data as a variable

Org-mode's calc support is very limited. I think someone with a working knowledge of how calc uses vectors would need to add table support. Unfortunately calc experts seem to be few and far between.

Unfortunately calc experts seem to be few and far between. Looking at the calc source code was not terribly helpful, since it is barely documented. The info page can help somewhat, though. Doing a little bit of digging, it looks like you can bind variables for =calc-eval= like so: #+BEGIN_SRC elisp (let ((var-a [1, 2, 3])) (calc-eval evalv(reduce(add, a #+END_SRC #+RESULTS: : 6 This pattern could be used for variable binding. It would mean wrapping the code to be evaluated in =evalv=. If I get some time, I might investigate writing a patch to do this. -- Daniel Hackney
